The present work aims to develop a growth medium to render a wild-type strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae permeable to the anti-fungal drug Brefeldin A. In the current study, a synthetic medium containing 0.1% L-proline and supplemented with 3.0 × 10 −3 % SDS is employed. When Brefeldin A is added to this medium, a wild-type strain shows increased growth(More)
Heme oxygenase (HO) catalyzes the first and rate-controlling step of heme catabolism into biliverdin, iron and carbon monoxide. Three isoforms of HO have been identified so far: the inducible HO-1 and the constitutive HO-2 and HO-3. Both HO-1 and HO-2 were expressed in zona fasciculata (ZF) adrenal cells and in a mouse adrenocortical cell line (Y1). HO-1(More)
Synthetic waxes produced by standard and registered processes may be used to manufacture Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA), which is a modified asphalt concrete produced, applied and compacted at temperatures below those typically required. This feature leads to environmental benefits, such as reduced energy consumption, gas and fume emissions, as well as to(More)
